Under-inflated tires increase rolling resistance, use more gas and wear more rapidly. Keeping tires inflated to the maximum recommended pressure (printed in the owner’s manual) can reduce fuel use by 3-4% and extend tire life. Make sure your wheels are properly aligned to reduce fuel consumption, extend tire life and improve handling. Rotating tires at designated intervals will keep them wearing evenly and lasting longer. According to Consumer Reports, a tire’s rolling resistance “can add or detract an additional 1-2 miles per gallon,” NOTE: Some tires claim low rolling resistance and high fuel economy, such as Michelin’s Energy MXV4 and Continental’s ContiPremierContact.
In 2005 actress Jennifer Carpenter, playing Emily Rose, was haunted in the middle of the night on a few occasions when her stereo kept turning on. She said it was playing only part of a Pearl Jam song over and over, “I’m still alive”!
This Holiday Inn is conveniently located just off I-25 and I-40. The hotel’s central location allowed us to venture out without fear of getting lost, or driving excessively. The large hotel is visible from either highway, and its’ distinctive signage makes it stand out from the rest. We arrived ahead of schedule at approximately 2:20pm. Check-in time was 3:00pm, but I attempted to check in early, in hopes that our room would be available.

Another site that we visited was Sandia Peak. We opted to take the tram car up to the top. Be forewarned that the top of the peak can easily be 25 to 30 degrees cooler. Additionally, check the weather, because the last place you want to be is on top of Sandia Peak during a storm. The tram ride up the mountain takes approximately 15 minutes. Once on the top of the mountain, there are spectacular views available. There is also a restaurant on the top of the mountain. During our trip we decided to forego the restaurant and simply enjoyed the views. At one point during the tram car ride, you can look down a 1000 foot drop. For those of you that afraid of heights, I would recommend staying away from this activity.
